Hi, it’s Ruth. I’m here at your Silver Creek Clogging Dance and Movement Center in Silverton, Oregon; the home of Dance Classes that Make Kids HappyTM.
This is What’s Happening at Silver Creek Clogging the week of December 21st and we are officially on winter break. Yes; this week is our first week of our two-week winter break.
I really hope you guys have just a spectacular holiday with your loved ones. I feel like this holiday season is probably going to be somewhat different than we are used to experiencing. There will be a lot of similarities still and there will also be a lot of differences. Hopefully we can all find the joys (the gifts) that are there for us in all of the similarities and all of the differences, as we go through this holiday. I hope your holiday experience is just an amazing one. So, sending my happy holiday wishes to you and your families.
And, I do have just a couple of reminders to touch base on. They’re somewhat time sensitive. Some of them are happening during the winter break, so I just want to just touch base.
First of all, we’re on a two-week winter break from our regular classes. I think that’s probably the third time I mentioned that already; but there you have it.
Also, next week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (it’s the 28th 29th and 30th) we’re holding our dance and dream sessions. There are quite a few opportunities/slots open on those three days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday), you can choose any time that’s available. The link to the sign up for your dance and dream session, that’s in your email that you got on Monday.
I also want to just remind you that the dance and dream session is free; it’s included in tuition, so it’s not something you have to pay for. It’s a private, one-on-one dreaming and goal setting session with your instructor. This is a really great time to just dream of anything; anything you think you might want to achieve, participate in, accomplish in the next year (2021), we can talk about that and then help you make a plan to realize your dreams in 2021.
It’s also a really great idea, especially for parents of the younger kids, to come participate and we can talk about what’s happening in your child’s dance education, and where they’re headed, review any questions that you might have as we’re going through this goal setting session.
So, that’s it, dance and dream sessions. I hope everybody will sign up for one of those private, one-on-one dance and dream sessions with your instructor for next week.
If, for some reason, you can’t come next week and you would still like to have a dance and dream session please get in touch with us. If there’s any way that we can find another time that works for you we will certainly do our best to do that.
I also want to mention, competition sign-up; the deadline for competition sign-up is on January 7th, Thursday, so just keep that on your calendars. You have the competition sign-up form on your email, so just remember that.
And then, also, next week is New Year’s Day and we are going to have a little bit of a clogging New Year’s Day celebration; ring in the New Year on January 1st; earlier in the afternoon than our normal first Friday sessions, but it’ll be super fun. We’re going to have a little a dance celebration. I’m really excited about it. All the details about time and how to join us are coming for you to you next week, but just keep that on your calendars for Friday, January 1st.
Also, please let your friends and family know that we are hosting an online Discover Clogging workshop; this is our introductory (or trial) class for brand new, never having been clogging before, students and it’s just a really great time to jump and smile and just get really introduced to how amazing clogging is. Links to that are in your email. Please spread the word to your families and friends.
And then, also, I know there’s a lot up in the air right now, but I do want to you to please keep the next three dates on your calendar: Saturday, January 16th, is our winter showcase recital. That’s the first day, please keep that on your calendar; then, in February, the first [Saturday] in February, the 6th, is competition in Portland, it’s a little question whether that’s actually going to happen, so we’ll keep you posted as soon as we have the final word on that, but please for now keep that on your calendars; and then, definitely keep Boise on your calendar for the following weekend, it’s the 12th and the 13th of February, so we can plan to go for that.
That’s what’s coming up in the near future.
I hope you guys remember how grateful I am for you.
I wish you just an amazing, healthy, happy – yeah, healthy and happy holiday with your loved ones and, as per usual, I definitely wish you happy dancing.
